Call of Duty Roadmap

The highlight of the first-person shooter’s latest update is the new Outbreak mode. Described as a “large-scale zombies experience,” players will once again fight to survive against hordes of zombies while completing objectives. Developer Treyarch has yet to reveal specifics, but exact details are expected in the next few days. The mode will drop sometime during the season’s launch week.

Other new modes include fan favorites Gun Game and Stockpile, a six-versus-six competitive game that combines Hardpoint and Kill Confirmed. Players must collect opponents’ dog tags and then deposit them in specific drop sites to score points.

Other new additions to the game include four new operators, four multiplayer maps, and six weapons. In addition to new snipers and submachine guns, players will get a shovel that can be used as a melee weapon.

Call of Duty’s battle royale game, Warzone, is getting some major updates as part of season 2. The biggest change is that new “points of interest” will be added to the map. Treyarch teased a new underground area and a giant cargo ship full of loot that players will be able to explore.

Warzone will get two new game modes as well. In Exfiltration, players must hunt down a crackling radio hidden somewhere in the map and try to hold onto it long enough to win. Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme ups the player count of the game’s respawn-enabled mode to 90.
